8 Reasons For

LG Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

LG has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire LCD screen range.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on PC screens that are a comparable age to it.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think the HP Pavilion 27, and the Philips BDM3490UC (£688.96) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

3440 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the 34UC98-W is 3440 x 1440 pixels. That's over two times the display resolution of a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC display, which is the most frequently found display resolution. The worst display resolution of all medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 34UC98-W is 1366 x 768 pixels and the best is 4096 x 2160 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG 34UC98-W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for more than a year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Philips BDM3490UC (£688.96) which has better reviews; or the Acer BX340CK (£499.97), and the Samsung TC242W (£498.00) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Only Two USB Type-A Downstream Ports Quantitys

The LG 34UC98-W is a two USB Type-A downstream ports quantity PC screen.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the 34UC98-W do not have a built-in camera. The LG 34UC98-W is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Like most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age, the 34UC98-W is not 3D.

PC screens which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the Asus PG278Q (£539.99).

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The LG 34UC98-W does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 34UC98-W also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a card reader integrated to this LCD screen and we think the Benq SW2700PT (£599.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Pricey

The price range of medium monitors that have been available for more than a year is from £40 to £1,920. We think that this flatpanel monitor looks expensive compared to other medium monitors that have been available for more than a year.

Very High Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 34UC98-W will cost £146 over 8 years to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.

Quite Low Height Adjustment

The lowest height adjustment of medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago is 20mm, the highest is 180mm, and the average height adjustment is 130mm. The 34UC98-W has one of the lower height adjustments (only 110 millimeters) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.
